2008 was a great year around here. William Olen made us a family in March, Jason and I celebrated 7 years of marriage and 14 years together, we took Will home to Washington, and have visited lots of friends and family. 2009 is sure to be fun as well! The Inauguration of Obama in January, we take Will home to Seattle for his first birthday at the end of February/first of March, Aunt Tricia and Uncle Tim will visit in April, and we go to a conference in Pittsburgh with Jason in March. This summer will hold the biggest changes, Jason will hopefully find a professorship and we will be leaving Maryland for good! Yeah! So if any of you feel the need to come see the Lincoln Memorial while enjoying sleeping on our floor, please take advantage of this opportunity soon! May you all be blessed with a great 2009!
